Sometimes the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. With the iconic toy simply known as Barbie, the reverse might also be true. Margaux Lange created Plastic Body Series out of that notion. Lange took hundreds of donated and salvaged dolls and deconstructed them. From there she used the parts along with silver and resin to create her one of a kind line of jewelry. On her website she states that, “The series is a result of Lange’s desire to re-purpose mass produced materials into handmade, wearable art.” The result is an alternative to waste production, and also makes Barbie cool again for her older fans.
